The reading seems ok, but the cadence is really odd. Is it actually read by a person? It sounds a little like the family guy take on Willaim Shatner's delivery! Is this a technical issue at my end or the way the guy sounds?

If you have ever watched the 'Conan the Barbarian' movies, you will recognize these characters.
Conan and Valeria find themselves pulled into a clan war and help their new friends to win it, only to have those same friends turn on them, kidnapping Valeria and trying to kill Conan. Why would they do this? What is the secret of the clans?
This is a very action-filled story with some racy scenes so be warned; I wouldn't play this one for the kids.
